Shakira Confirms That She’s Pregnant With Her Second Child
Another baby is on the way for Shakira and boyfriend Gerard Piqué!
The 37-year-old Colombian beauty made the official announcement on her Facebook today, Aug. 28, writing, “Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes!”
Word of Shakira’s second pregnancy began in July after she performed at the 2014 World Cup closing ceremony in Brazil.
Shakira first gave birth to Milan Piqué Mebarak in Jan. 22, 2013. The singer told Latina magazine (quotes via People) in April that she and Gerard were hoping to have another child soon.
“If it weren’t because of my music projects, I would be pregnant already,” she admitted. “I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard — my own [soccer] team.”
Piqué is a professional football/soccer player for FC Barcelona and the Spanish national team.
Congratulations to Shakira and Gerard, and we can’t wait to see their next bundle of joy next year.
